Subject: Good Bob Steele Western
Let me add to the reviews below that this is a good western staring Bob Steele. The plot is interesting and progresses to a satisfactory conclusion. The supporting cast adds to the quality of the movie.

Subject: The Civil War, 2
An entertaining look at a second attempt to "overthrow" the Union just after the end of the Civil War on the road out West.

Subject: Very Entertaining!
Regardless of it's public domain status, this is one of the better 1930's westerns that you'll find. I've not been a big fan of the westerns that Robert N. Bradbury directed during the 30's, especially the early John Wayne films he attempted to Direct. However, this film is one that he got right. It has solid acting and a good story, which begins with a few action scenes from the end of the War Against Northern Agression (aka U.S. Civil War). It then transitions to the wesstward flight that many former soldiers, both Yank and Reb, undertook with their families to build a new life in the territories West of the Mississippi. The story is rounded out in the second half of the movie with an indian attack on a wagon train, a couple of U.S. Cavalry charges, and a conspiracy against the U.S. Government to establish a new country for Southerners out west. There are some excellent stunts performed on horse back, such as men falling off of horses at full gallops while supposedly being shot during a gunfight on horseback chase scene. Bob Steele does a fine job as the hero. By the way, Bob Steele was born Robert Adrian Bradbury in 1907 in Portland, Oregon, into a vaudeville family. It is his Dad, Robert North Bradbury, who was the Director and the Screenwriter for this film.

Subject: Bob Steele's First Republic Pictures Release
As I have stated in other Bob Steele reviews on this site, the quality of his films varied wildly. A.W. Hackel's Supreme Pictures was sought out by Republic to supply Johhny Mack Brown and Bob Steele westerns under the Republic banner as they needed more product, mostly as a stop-gap measure. The influence of the new studio is shown immediately in the production values, contract players, and the cash infusion to Mr. Hackel's company. This is an excellant story line which moves along quite well. Bob Steele is very good. Frances Grant is winsome and believeable as the love interest. The supporting cast is in top form as well. It does have a judicious amount of stock footage of wagon trains and indians which doesn't always match, but it's not a major quibble. A primo print and sound copy of this film. Highly recommended.
